From flowers raised in a greenhouse to cabinets constructed in the woodshop, every career and technical education student at Buffalo High School has a project they’ve been working hard on this year.
On May 14, those students and their months of hard work will take center stage during Buffalo High School’s Career and Technical Education spring show.
“Our spring show is an opportunity to showcase all of the hard work our students have done with agriculture and computer-aided design and in the woodshop,” said agriculture teacher Jake Evans. “We’re excited to showcase that and share it with the community.”
For the first time, the spring show will be held concurrently with a career show for students. More than 30 businesses from Gillette, Sheridan and Buffalo – covering a variety of fields from the culinary arts to manufacturing – will have booths to introduce BHS students to their career fields.
“The career show was actually suggested by one of our students, Bridgette Klasinski, and we thought it was an awesome idea,” Evans said. “There are a lot of different career options out there, and we hope that the show will spark our students’ imaginations and give them some ideas for the future.”
The spring show is open to the public, and Evans said everyone is invited to attend, even if you don’t know a student in the show.
“Our trades and industrial arts programs are very strong, and we’re excited to showcase them,” Evans said. “This event will be a great opportunity to show what the kids are doing.”
